With November almost flooding into it’s second week its no surprise that Christmas is on the lips and minds of many.
Whilst many are hustling hours of their days together in order to beat the Christmas rush or are searching pinterest for the 10 easiest Christmas decor ideas. Cloverton, a contemporary christian “rock” bank took to rewrite the already chiling 1994 track covered by Jeff Buckley (originally performed by Leonard Cohen 1984) to modernize the story of Jesus’ and how we came to celebrate this Holy day.
This is Clovertons-A Hallelujah Christmas
“I know You came to rescue me
This baby boy would grow to be
A man and one day die for me and you
My sins would drive the nails in You
That rugged cross was my cross, too
Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah

More About Cloverton:
Cloverton is a contemporary Christian music and worship band from Manhattan, Kansas. The band started out as Lance Stafford on lead vocals and keys with his twin brother Layne Stafford on background vocals and bass guitar, alongside, drummer Kirby LeMoine and lead guitarist Josh Svorinic. This would change in 2015 with Kirby LeMoine’s and Josh Svorinic’s departure from the band, and the addition of Rains Wall on drums and Conner Giles on guitar.
The band released a successful single in 2011, “Take Me Into the Beautiful” with Fair Trade. This charted on various Christian music songs charts that Billboard puts out. The band would not get to release a full-fledged album with the label, so they crowdfunded, their first debut album, Patterns in 2013. This album did not chart.
Their first Christmas extended play, We Sing Joy, charted on three Billboard charts.
